Random October Pics

These are just of Ben enjoying his toddler bed, and him on a walk, throwing leaves into the stream below that bridge. We went apple picking! This time to Hollin Farm, about an hour away from our house. It was a pretty nice day -clear and grew warmer as the day wore on -and there …

Random July Pictures

There’s a park near one of James’ work locations that has a slew of wild raspberry bushes and we decided to take advantage of them and go raspberry picking with the kids. It was super hot and James was really the only one who managed to get a lot, in part because he had the …

The Fourth of July

We were supposed to go to Aunt Jan and Uncle Bob’s farm, but the coronavirus put those plans up in the air. At about the last minute, permission to travel beyond 120 miles was rescinded, so we stayed home and had our standard BBQ fare, plus some poppers and sparklers. And scooter-riding.

Random June Pictures

Wow. So it’s been 6 months since I’ve added anything to the site. That’s mostly been a function of having some storage issues with the site server, but also just the general craziness of trying to find a rhythm during quarantine, readjusting that rhythm as school begins… readjusting again as all-day-sickness sets in and remains… …

Random May Pictures

Instead of buying kiddie pools, we broke out the winter sleds and filled those with water, which both kids have enjoyed. Ben hates water splashed in his face a la Evie or the sprinkler, but he does enjoy sitting in the water and taking water from one place to another. You can also see pieces …

Mother’s Day

I had asked James for a picnic, but it was cold! So we ate inside. James put together a tea party with small sandwiches, smoked salmon, blueberry scones, a caprese salad, and tea. So good! Plus, he made challah, which was supposed to be for French toast, but we ran out of eggs. So we …

Patio Furniture

We needed new patio furniture but we couldn’t quite agree on what to get and we definitely didn’t want to spend a ton of money on it. Eventually, we decided James could take it on as a project (seriously, it was a joint decision; we were looking at other projects and talked about maybe making …

Vegetarianism-ness

Going vegan, or at the very least vegetarian, is the best diet for the planet but I cannot do that. I don’t think many of us could in the strictest sense, but I definitely can’t. BUT, this year I’m trying to have more vegetarian meals each week. The reason is multi-fold, which I think will …

Random January Pictures

Some pictures from school: We had our first snow of the year/season a week into the new year and Evie had a blast. James came home early because work closed and kicked everyone out, and he picked up the kids early so they could enjoy it. Ben was… hesitant. Not unlike with sand and pool …

Random December Pictures

Random pictures from daycare (there’s a lot more, but I do try only to put pictures on our site that don’t have anyone else’s children. Also, apparently they’ve changed their default picture type, which isn’t compatible with WordPress -or, perhaps, anyone, because I’ve never seen it before -and I’ve only just realized it and haven’t …
